Very nice shots of a sick car. I love #2.. looks like its about to rip the rear tires off the rims. I'd be afraid of sucking up small animals/children into that turbo when spooling up with no air filter. Got any interior shots? I'd like to see pics of the intercooler setup that's hiding in there somewhere.

It may have been a GN but that's not a 3.8 L under the hood now.

Check out the ground... notice, that wasn't his first attempt at a burnout? ;) heheheheeh

Interior shots are in the link I posted :) But here's one anyways.
Notice the intercooler behind the passengers HEAD.

If you consider a daily driver (yes, it is actually) that hits mid 7's slow, sure. :lol:

LOL, the guy has owned 43 GN's and GNX's... you probably won't like his new car either, a twin turbo SBC REAL... yes, real GNX. :)

I don't think I'd like to be a small bird flying anywhere near the front, it'd probably get sucked right through those grill bars!
